Teaching Team

On the cooking side, practical culinary skills are taught by Stéphane Mack, one of the top chefs from Michel Guérard’s Michelin-starred restaurant, who holds various responsibilities, including top-of-the-range catering for special events, training chefs, creating and introducing menus. His multidisciplinary experience gives him special expertise in choosing produce, cost constraints, working methods both in traditional and mass catering.

The pastry-making course is taken by Sébastien Perbost, the Pastry Chef of Michel Guérard’s Michelin-starred restaurant since 2007. An experienced teacher, he is a master in sweeteners and substitution techniques particular to the Health Pastry® he produces every day.

The theoretical side is taught by a number of professionals, including a doctor, a specialist in diet-related metabolic disorders (diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular diseases, etc.), and dieticians based at Les Prés d’Eugénie.
